Sander Meinema

Software architect / developer

Sander is an ambitious, professional and certified Java Software Architect & Engineer. He always likes to learn new technologies as well as skills to improve the team and himself. He is fascinated by workflows in software development, structure in code and CI / CD. He can quickly adopt new techniques and apply them because he is able to go through a steep growth and learning curve. He likes to approach and quickly provides added value in a new environment. Sander writes his code so that others can understand and reuse it. His code is logically structured and commented. He places his work within the larger whole to make it fit into the landscape. Sander has a highly developed analytical mind and is strong in reasoning and content. This allows him to get a quick overview, to get to the heart of the problem and to come up with efficient and non-standard solutions.

He has developed his soft skills extensively within politics and by organising Meetups. He has become an experienced Scrum Master who keeps focus on the MVP, iteratively and quickly delivering business value, keeping an eye on code quality and maintenance and a happy team. He also likes to occasionally try out new formats for team meetings, such as Scrum Retrospectives or Product Backlog Grooming Refinement to break the regularity.

Key words that characterise him are serious, solid, reliable, humble with a touch of humor.
